it greatly saddens me to pass this information along to sito artists and the community at large. from sylvias husband:
Regretfully I have to let you know that Sylvia passed away this morning, 15th June. I don't know if she ever confided in anyone at SITO that she was a Parkinsons Disease sufferer, but she was diagnosed almost 10 years ago and has had more severe syptoms as time passed.
I must let you know that SITO has been of such great inspiration and benefit to her over the last couple of years that it inspired her to produce, and produce, and produce many images. Some good, some great, and in her own words, some crap. But without this means of expression she may well have succumbed to her symptoms much earlier, I can only thank you.
